We currently work in the following regions:

The Adriatic Sea with its delicate reefs and plentiful wrecks provides habitat to many marine species and poses a particular challenge to our clean-up activities.

In cooperation with our partner DeFishGear, our diving team cleans up derelict fishing gear from reefs and selected wrecks in Croatia and Italy. Furthermore we established a waste fishing net reception facility in the port of Ancona. Here the fisherman communities from the ports of Ancona, Cattolica and Molfetta in Italy store their waste fishing nets.

As part of the Adriatic Sea pilot, we will increase our cooperation with fishermen communities across Italy, Slovenia and Croatia to raise awareness and collect their waste fishing nets. Also, we are identifying other suitable locations for clean-up actions in the Adriatic region.
